Coming into the month of May, if you had asked me which property had the greater chance of being a huge disappointment between Avengers: Endgame and Game of Thrones, I would have gone with Avengers: Endgame. Comic book movie fans are notoriously protective of the characters, and after 11 years of movies, there seemed to be very little reason to expect the Russos could please most fans after all the speculation that went down following Avenger: Infinity War.
Of course, we all know how it turned out. Avengers: Endgame was universally beloved and Game of Thrones…well, let’s just say these fans have become less than charitable with their praise, with some stupidly calling for a redo of the entire final season. Now, those same fans will be shocked to hear that HBO has submitted the series finale for an Emmy for Best Writing.
I’m sure there are plenty of you out there who are ready to yell out in anguish. After all, how could HBO possibly manage to get a nomination from it if it was so poorly received? Well, our own Cam Clark — our resident Game of Thrones guru — hasn’t been too kind to this past season himself, but even he has to admit the ending itself worked fairly well. When all said and done, it was the quick heel-turn earlier on and the events leading up to the finale that created the fan hatred.
